The Washington Post's education columnist Jay Mathews is at it again - soliciting reader input for his columns. If fact he is begging readers to help him identify the best middle schools in the DC-VA-MD area and any middle schools across the country that have "spectacular results or very unusual methods." You may notice the trend. Mathews just wrote a column about the best education blogs in which he solicited reader nominations. It's very web 2.0 of him to solicit "user content" as opposed to traditional news-gathering. But then again, Mathews has always done things a little differently. Go, Jay.
